Make your own cogs and gears!

Using the Merge Shapes tools, and multiple shapes, you too can make some pretty impressive shapes!

  1. You'll need to make 1 large circle, a multi-pointed star, a medium circle, and a smaller circle in that order. It should look like the shapes on the left.
  2. Alter the star so that each of the points is wide enough for each tooth of your cog. The tooth of your cog will be the distance between the medium and the large circle.
  3. Take the large circle and star and use Intersect.
  4. Then, take the medium circle and merged shape and use Union.
  5. Finally, take the merged shape and smaller circle and use Subtract.
  6. If done correctly, you should have a cog similar to the shape on the right in the picture above.

Wow!  That's even easier than it looks!  Especially if you use that incredibly handy "Align>Center, Align>Middle" trick all throughout the ProCess (how I pronounce that word: "Pro Sess"!)
